An attempt is made to delineate three phosphatase systems in the epiphyseal mechanism of the rabbit, dog, and human being. Of particular interest is inorganic pyrophosphatase since it is present in substantial amount only in the proliferating cell zone. Some of its properties are described. An explanation of its functional significance to the growth mechanism is suggested.
